COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber colored pale ale was the first beer we brewed together, so it was only fitting to name it FIRST BITE. Generous additions of American hops, light body and a dry.finish give it plenty of flavor and aroma while still remaining highly drinkable. YOU GOT BITTEN

jbruner (2984) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Growler shared at RBWG! Pours a translucent copper with fluffy off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of fresh hoppy resins and a good caramel and crystal malt back. Taste follows, really hoppy and resinous, fresh and clean with a good bitter finish. If it weren’t for the low alcohol I would call this a solid IPA.

nimbleprop (6062) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 29, 2012
12oz bottle pours a lightly hazy caramel amber with some sudsy, lacing white head. Nose is ok, citrus peel, blood orange, a little hay, a little dusty, grapefruit zest. Flavor is the same, something a bit like Orval which makes me think this is either an old bottle or slightly infected, heavy blood orange, dried lemon peel, a little ginger. Medium bodied, dry finish. Something a bit off.
